I know that she will dedicate her efforts to bring the concerns and needs of the people in Red Deer to our legislature. . I got to know Adèle when she was President of our Rotary Club.

She has demonstrated that any project she engages in will make a difference in the lives of the people she serves.

Adele is a Critical Thinker
“Adele is a critical thinker. She has had to make numerous decisions about her life, as a single mom, bringing up two children on her own. A skill that was shaped in her home, finding ways to make things possible, with restricted resources, being able to say no when there were no other options available. That is the kind of person we desperately need in parliament.”
